Question: Hi Brandon, first of all I just want you to know how great full I am to be able to study God’s word and the use of your Bible studies as references. You are an awesome teacher and instrument in teaching! I have been learning things that I had never heard before in 35 years of attending church! All’s I can say is “Glory to God”!
My question is, in your opinion, do the countries of the G7 group have anything to do with the 10 clay kings?
Answer: Great question Pearl and you are very welcome. We thank God for it.
We are going to lay a little ground work here so everyone is on the same page.
The Ten Clay Kings are brought to our attention in Daniel 2:31-45. There Daniel begins to describe Nebuchadnezzar's dream which includes the ten toes of iron and clay. For a complete run down and understanding of this and more please read, The Scarlet Beast With Seven Heads And Ten Horns.
Let’s begin by turning our Bible to,
Daniel 7:24Also: Daniel 7:7
And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Now the “ten horns” are none other than the Ten Clay Kings, being ten kings from the earth. We can be certain of that, as “another shall rise” is a reference to the “little horn” who is Satan, (Daniel 7:8, 20). After Satan appears, he will “subdue three kings” which are three of the Ten Clay Kings.
That means Satan removes three clay kings from power leaving only seven in power. Scripture does not indicate one way or another if they are replaced.
This event must be tied to the Deadly Wound, and what this verse explains is a part of the healing of this grievous wound. Upon Satan's appearance, he removes three of the Ten Clay Kings from power, in effect, healing the earthly calamity.
This also documents for us, the Ten Clay Kings are separate from the ten iron kings in Revelation 17. We can be certain of that as the ten kings in Revelation 17 reign “as kings one hour with the beast” who is Satan, (see: The Hour Of Temptation). That hour being symbolic of the entire Tribulation.
So one group of ten kings becomes disrupted, while one group of ten kings remains intact during the entire Tribulation. That is a clear distinction that defines a separation between the ten toes of iron and clay in Daniel 2.
To be clear, the Clay Kings are from earth, while the Iron Kings are cast from Heaven with Satan, (see: When Was Satan Cast Out Of Heaven?). Again, read the aforementioned study for clarification on this.
The G7 (Group of Seven) consists of the world’s largest “advanced economies” and its members include Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
When we consider Bible prophecy, we tend to get tunnel vision and only focus on the now, not considering the past. That was one of the reasons why we wrote The Planned Financial Collapse Of The World. We always need to consider the past along with the present.
With that said, the G7 superseded the G5 in 1987. Additionally, there is also the G10, G15, G20, G24, and G77, (IMF: A Guide To Committees, Groups, and Clubs). If we dial in on the G20, we find they are an,
International forum that brings together the world’s major economies. Its members account for more than 80% of world GDP, 75% of global trade and 60% of the population of the planet.
As we can see, there are numerous groups that change over time. So it’s going to be hard to pin down groups that will be tied to the Ten Clay Kings.
Make no mistake about it, those who study Scripture will know who the Ten Clay Kings are when the time is appropriate. God specifically wrote that number in Scripture for us to identify them. Further, God even explained three will be removed so we know when Satan appears on earth, and where we are prophetically speaking.
When we consider who the Ten Clay Kings may be, it’s important to remember they complete the Sixth Kingdom. That will be a global order, a new world order. That means this global order comes into existence before the appearance of Satan who is the Antichrist.
So the political order of today will most likely not resemble the political order of tomorrow. In fact, we are seeing it change before our very eyes, slowly, but sure.
So while the Ten Clay Kings could be the leaders of the most powerful nations on earth, including some in the G7. I think we should remember we are talking about globalization, a globalized world in which the Ten Clay Kings rule over. Therefore, their dominion must be all-encompassing, and not tied to a single nation that has limited territory.
I think it’s most likely, the global territory will be consolidated into ten distinct regions that are ruled over by these Ten Clay Kings. I cannot imagine major world powers being dissolved, rather expanded. Think of the infrastructure involved alone.
Nevertheless, one day, they will all report to their President, Satan.
